Art of the Week: Love Nest

Love Nest
reappropriated women's & men's clothing, wire hanger, wooden pants hanger
Created for MoFA Member Challenge: Build a Nest to benefit Nest.
(Note: Not everything I do is for donation and I actually rarely make new work to donate, but I am catching up on things and was excited to participate in these two particular events.)

Working together to build our lives and our home, we feel connected and safe in one another’s arms. There are many who would judge us harshly for choosing not to procreate, who would say that our relationship is illicit despite our being married because we aren’t letting nature take its course and surrounding ourselves with children. But neither of us feels the desire to have children to be complete; we have each other and that is all we need.
